Religious Architecture in Tianjin
Matthew Stinson has recently finished a “photoblogging tour of monotheism in Tianjin” (with heavy emphasis on architecture). Take a look:
There’s one entry on Tianjin’s mosques…
…one entry on Tianjin’s Xikai Catholic Church…
…and one entry on Tianjin’s (endangered) synagogue.
Matthew provides plenty more photos, observations, and insight into Tianjin in each entry. Just follow the links above.
I intend to blog more on religion in China, but I’ve been putting it off. It’s extremely complex, and as such I find it an intimidating topic to approach. I think Matthew has handled pretty well what he’s tackled so far.
